Nollywood icon Genevieve Nnaji writes open letter to President Buhari on #ENDSARS, says it’s time for him to lead

Genevieve also pleads with the president to tell the police to stand down.

In an open letter to the president on Friday, October 9, 2020, Genevieve narrated how her 13-year-old niece was assaulted by operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) for carrying a laptop.

Worried about Buhari’s silence on the ongoing protest against police brutality, the actress asked the president to address Nigerians and order the police to stand down.

She said, “I urge you to speak to us because we are not mind readers. Your house is not in order and was far from stable. The people aren’t being empowered, neither are they being protected”.

Nigerians renewed their agitations against police brutality on Saturday, October 3, 2020, after operatives of the SARS allegedly killed a young man in Delta state and made away with his car.

As a unit of the Nigeria Police Force, SARS, which was established to address armed robbery and kidnapping in the country, has on several occasions been linked to brutality and extortion.
